James Cassella Promoted to DynCorp Chief Growth Officer; George Krivo Quoted

James Cassella

James Cassella, formerly senior vide president of business development at DynCorp International‘s aviation operating segment, has been promoted to chief growth officer of the global government services provider.

He will be responsible for DynCorp’s BD and corporate strategy meant to drive expansion initiatives, the company said Tuesday. Casella joined the McLean, Va.-based contractor in 2013 and has since then held a range of executive positions such as VP of corporate capture management and proposal development.

“Jim is perfect for this new position, given his proven leadership of business development and years of service at DI,” said George Krivo, DynCorp CEO and a 2019 Wash100 Award winner.

Krivo said the company expects Casella to play a key role in both organic and inorganic growth efforts.

Before DynCorp, Cassella held a VP role within the reconnaissance, surveillance and target acquisition business group at DRS Technologies, now Leonardo DRS. He also worked as an associate of Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) and led Joint and Army programs for the firm’s strategic communications unit.

He took on assignments at the tactical, strategic and operational levels during his officer career in the military, which included service at the Pentagon as spokesman and adviser to the defense secretary, chief of staff of the U.S. Army and other department leaders.

Cassella holds a bachelor’s degree in history from The Citadel and a master’s degree in military art and science from the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College.
